OKENE MASSACRE: Kumuyi Breaks Silence


General Superintendent, Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi has broken his silence following the massacre of 19 members of his church in Okene, Kogi State, Northcentral Nigeria.
He said the attack by gunmen was wicked and premeditated and called on the government to protect the citizens.

Kumuyi, who spoke for the first time since the dastardly incident occurred, expressed deep sadness and sorrow at the attack on Monday night on his Church during the Bible Study service.

“The attack is not only wicked, but utterly premeditated. The government should come to terms with the fact that a large swathe of people are being sent to the grave early, even as law enforcement agents seem unable to provide the required protection for all law abiding citizens. All these have implications for the progress, development and well being of the nation."

Pastor Kumuyi warned that no nation could continue the way things were going in the nation.

“These killings and destruction have been going on particularly in the northern part of our country for too long. Each time they occurred, the usual condemnations are made, but thereafter, the people are left without any assurance of their security and safety. No nation can continue this way."

“It is hard to reconcile that peace-loving people, sitting in their church, and listening to Bible Study were gunned down in cold blood by people they had done nothing to provoke,” he lamented.
